Can Shakespeare add another chapter to Leicester tale?Like his famous namesake, English playwright and poet William Shakespeare, Leicester City's manager Craig Shakespeare is hoping he can add a few blockbuster dramas to his own story.Appointed caretaker manager after the English champion sacked Claudio Ranieri last month, Shakespeare has brought such a revival over three games that the 53-year-old will stay in the job until the end of the season.Missing the intensity that carried the 5000-1 outsiders to a stunning title triumph, Leicester have struggled week after week in the league.Since Shakespeare stepped up, Leicester have been reinvigorated, beating Liverpool and Hull at home in the Premier League, then seeing off highly fancied Sevilla to reach the Champions League quarterfinals.Shakespeare has begun brilliantly and has another 11 Premier League games, as well as a Champions League quarterfinal, to make his case to continue in charge next season.Whether Shakespeare can achieve great things at Leicester, time will tell.The clubs have met twice before in Europe – in the second round of the European Cup Winners' Cup in the 1961/62 campaign (Leicester lost 3-1 on aggregate) and in 1997 when the Spaniards prevailed 4-1 over two legs in the first round of the UEFA Cup.
